Report: ‘Paid Provocateurs’ to Lead Caravan Migrants in Storming the Border on Saturday
‘Paid provocateurs’ are reported to be planning to lead caravan migrants in Tijuana in storming the El Chaparral border crossing Saturday morning in a replay of last Sunday’s violent attack by rioting migrants that prompted a tear gas response from border patrol agents.

A flyer is being distributed to migrants in the camp in Tijuana announcing the renewed effort to rush the border is timed for the inauguration Saturday of the newly elected President of Mexico, Manuel López Obrador.
The plans were reported by KUSI.com reporter John Soderman via social media and broadcast. Soderman said a federal officer told him about 600 migrants led by paid provocateurs, are going to participate in the border rush to provoke a response from border patrol like last Sunday. (NBC News reported earlier the federal government had informants inside the caravan.)
Breitbart’s Brandon Darby also reported on the planned border rush :
““In talking with people, among other things, we learned that they are in fact marching again tomorrow morning to the border,” reported Darby. “We had reported earlier that agitator groups were trying to rile the migrants up to go to the border. Many of the migrants have already left here, and Mexico is putting them in an inside-shelter — a shelter that’s enclosed — maybe some 45 minutes away, and there are buses coming [and] taking people, but a lot of people chose to stay here because some of them believe that Mexico is taking them to be deported and it’s a trick, and others are staying here because they’re going to march again tomorrow. So we can expect to see some of what we saw last week possibly happen again tomorrow. They are, in fact, planning on marching.”
Darby met up with Honduran tear gas mother of nine Maria Meza and reported she and the five kids she brought on the caravan are doing okay.

#KUSINews has learned from sources close to border security, that migrants in the caravan are being encouraged to join another march, or action, at the border on Saturday, 12/1/18. This flier is being distributed to all migrants, but a core of migrants, considered the most aggressive, and some paid as provocateurs, our sources say are planning to rush the border, and force Border Patrol reaction.
English version of the flyer posted to Facebook:

But it is important to know their propaganda being spread to the migrants. Also note the the end where they acknowledge they are using economic warfare to shut down the border crossing to hurt trade and businesses. As mentioned in the KUSI broadcast report, the action comes as border businesses plan for big Christmas sales with Saturday being the first of the month.)

Our first march to the border on Sunday, November 25, brought us closer than ever to the United States since we began our great march for freedom! Some of us even touch American soil. Everyone in the caravan reminded us of the strength we have among all of us. The government of Donald Trump and the United States reminded them that we will not give up until we fulfill our dream of reaching “The USA” and that the pressure of the people who support us in the United States, in Mexico and in the world, is on him. On the Mexican side, the new president, Manuel López Obrador, also reminded him that he can not be Trump’s waterboy, starting his presidency by doing Trump’s dirty work. Our march that closed the border has cost millions of dollars for the United States and Mexico, increasing economic pressure on Trump by companies and individuals both in Mexico and the United States. . The success of the caravan’s tactic of closing the border, stopping “business as usual” and costing great economic losses to both countries is the reason why we must continue marching towards the border. The United States and Mexico can not afford to continue losing billions of dollars with each closing. Trump can not close the border permanently, no matter how much he lies and threatens Mexico and the caravans. stopping “business as usual” and costing big economic losses to both countries is the reason why we must continue marching towards the border. The United States and Mexico can not afford to continue losing billions of dollars with each closing. Trump can not close the border permanently, no matter how much he lies and threatens Mexico and the caravans.
Our first march towards the border, which caused the closure of the sentry box is already changing things in our favor. Despite the blows and nasty attacks against us by the US immigration officers and the Mexican police, our attempt was not in vain. We already know from our experience in Guatemala, that in order to have to cross, it may take more than one attempt, and although the border between Mexico and the United States will be more difficult, it is not impossible. Thanks to the success of our march on Sunday, international support has greatly increased in our favor. Videos and images of the brutal response of border agents, firing rubber bullets and tear gas bombs indiscriminately against migrants, including children, continue to travel the world day and night, causing the world to condemn the actions of the Trump government. Politicians in the United States who were previously silent, now criticize Trump and defend the right of the caravan to ask for asylum.
The new government of Mexico, with Lopez Obrador as president, has been forced to deny plans between his government and the Trump government, of wanting to implement the policy of “Staying in Mexico,” which would force this caravan and others to stay and wait months and maybe years for the opportunity to enter or receive asylum in the United States. It would also create permanent refugee camps in Tijuana and across the border on the Mexico side.
On Saturday, December 1st, the first day of Lopez Obrador as president, we have to let him know that neither the people of Mexico, nor we in the caravan, will allow him to do Trump’s dirty work. The blood of people attacked on the border, the cruelty against children, and the suffering of the people in our caravan and the next people seeking asylum who arrive at the border, who also need to try to cross, will be the fault of Trump as equal of Lopez Obrador. International freedom of movement, the right of people to move freely across international borders around the world, particularly in oppressed nations, is a growing daily need caused by climate change, economic instability and wars and regimes dictatorial Obrador must completely abandon this plan of the policy “Stay in Mexico” and must support the migrants, demanding that the border be opened so that they allow us to enter and ask for asylum. We have made a long journey and we are now at the finish line, we can not accept or believe the lies and false rumors that are saying to discourage us and to abandon our dreams. This is not the time to return to our countries, we must stay together and maintain our strength as we struggle to cross. The end of our march is almost over, it’s time to cross the finish line. We can not accept or believe the lies and false rumors that are telling us to discourage us and to abandon our dreams. This is not the time to return to our countries, we must stay together and maintain our strength as we struggle to cross. The end of our march is almost over, it’s time to cross the finish line. We can not accept or believe the lies and false rumors that are telling us to discourage us and to abandon our dreams.

mages and videos of the brave caravan border closure to cross into the US UU And the brutal racist response of US immigration agents. UU They reminded Americans and people around the world of the videos and images of the struggle of the sixties led by Dr. Martin. Luther King against racist segregation in the southern United States. At the marches that took place in Selma, Alabama, where thousands of people tried to march across the Pettus Bridge to Montgomery, Alabama to defeat the racist segregation of “Jim Crow” (Racial segregation policies) and were attacked by the police, who threw tear gas. A similar struggle took place in Birmingham, Alabama, where thousands of young people led the final mass march in the streets, affirming their dignity and equality against the brutal racist police. In both cases, their struggle shocked and “woke up the national consciousness” and the world and inspired thousands to join and march again, forcing the government to change its policies and defeating unequal second-class treatment of African-Americans under the racist segregation in the United States. .
Likewise, everyone knows that both Mexico and the United States depend on trade relations between both countries and also with our Central American countries. When we close the border, we show our power, costing you millions and millions of dollars lost, to Mexico and also to the United States. With each of our attempts and each closure of the border, it means more pressure from the people and businesses of Mexico and the United States on Trump and Lopez Obrador. The solution is easy: asylum for all, let the caravan enter!
